At the Smackdown taping Tuesday night, Road Warrior Animal defeated Paul Burchill with OVW talent Shelly Martinez in his corner. WWE signed Martinez to a developmental deal in April 2005.
Paul Heyman is not at the OVW tapings today due to ECW related business in CT. They are just under one month away from the re-debut of the brand. Contracts have been and are being sent out with some talent already signing them and sending them back.
As you might expect, despite pre-Wrestlemania 22 rumors, Shawn Michaels is not planning to work just “big shows.” He will continue working his full-time schedule.
